Marketing leaders in marketing groceries.

By Eileen McDargh - Saturday, December 02, 2006
You're not dreaming. It's Publix, a market at the corner of Oakland Park Blvd and Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale.

For decades, my 90 year-old Mom has been shopping here, greeted by clerks who know her and aisles that never change. I just happen to be in town to finally see what has become a tradition.

Non-stop action thins our capacity for creativity and wears out the soul. Relish this season.
